Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN October 29, 2016 9:00pm-10:01pm EDT
i was in mayor brown's old town yesterday, and there are a lot of republicans there, too. i did this rally, and when i finished, i win down and shook hands. i always look for the little kid that get squeezed out. there was this young boy looking at me, and he said you know why i'm for hillary, and i said no, but i would like to, and he said because i am autistic, and she won't make fun of me. i said you are pretty smart, too, aren't you, and he said that is what they say, but i have trouble getting along. but he got the message. i said well, you should know that hillary joined with democrats and republicans when she was a senator, in an autism group, and she was the first person to run for president that had a position on this, and the number of children with your
condition has tripled in the last 20 years, nobody exactly knows why, but we know you can all do better. he said good, i feel better now. ernest. then, two or three rallies back, there was a handsome young man that looked like he was from south asia, and look like he was about 10 years old. he said i am for hillary because i am a muslim, i love america, and she likes me. i was a republican, my whole family a republican. we are all for hillary because she likes us. i get home, and i go to this little book store where a woman has bravely risked her life savings to open an independent bookstore -- how crazy is that, right? and she is making it. she said i want you to read the essay my 13-year-old wrote about the first debate. he said i really liked hillary in the first debate because she
had facts, statistics, and concrete answers to the questions. it gave me confidence. this young man at 13 wrote an essay i could not have written at 25. it was so well-written. there is no telling what this kid's iq is. he writes all about that, and at the end i felt she cared about me. he said that is important to me because i have a very severe muscular disability. not a mental one, a physical one, and i need someone who cares enough to give me a chance to do everything my abilities will allow. that is stronger together. that is what this whole election is about. what is america going to be like for the next 30 years? i am telling you, we are the best positioned country in the world. we have the chance to elect a president with the standing in the world and the understanding of the world to keep us safe
enough, and give us space enough to grow and lead the world away from a lot of this divisive rhetoric, and even killing, on our differences. that is what this whole thing is about. bob dylan won the nobel prize this year. and for us people of a certain age, that was a kick, right? [laughter] secretary clinton: the most important song he ever wrote for this election was "forever young." it says "you stay forever young," if there is a letter in front of you, and you can climb every rung." listen, my heart breaks for a lot of people on the other side who are just so angry and hurt because they think their tomorrows are going to be like today, and they cannot change them because we do not give a rip about them, but we do.
you just remember. -- you just remember, this is an election about answers over anger, bridges over walls. if we choose the former, we will do what our founders told us to do. those people were really smart. you think they thought we had a perfect democracy? thomas jefferson said when i think of slavery, i tremble to believe that god is just. in other words, i am toast if i do not get forgiven. when the country started, only white, male property owners could vote, and that meant a lot of people, including the ancestors of me and governor strickland would not have been able to vote either because they did not have any property. the founders said we pledge our lives, fortune, sacred honor, to
form a more perfect union, because we are stronger together. and ever since then, in fits and starts, with struggles and fights, like the ones we are going through today, we always chose to widen the circle of opportunity, to deepen the meaning of freedom, to strengthen the bonds in our candidate. that is what is at stake. i am telling you, you have a chance to vote for a person who is the time she was 30 had done more to advance the public interest than her opponent has in a lifetime. [applause] mr. clinton: and you have a chance to keep america forever young. i have one of those lanterns. if i were 20 again, and a genie comes out and says you could live wherever you want the next
30 years, but you have to decide right now, i would pick the united states because no rational person would count us out. any rational analysis would say we could grow our way into shared prosperity. we can grow our way into taking the world away from climate change. we have to believe we can do it together. there is no alternative. so, i am going to leave you with this -- the single most emotional moment i had in this campaign for me personally in eastern ohio. when i met a bishop. are you ok? i met a bishop who told me his
name, and i said the most important thing here is not that i am a bishop. he said the most important thing is that i am the grandson of luther black of hope, arkansas, a working man, who bought all of his groceries from your grandfathers store, before there were any food stands, any help. he said your grandfather -- as my grandfather told me many times -- when he came home and his children needed food, and he had no money, he said luther, take whatever you need, come back and pay me when you can. he looked at me and he said somehow, we have to get that back in america. we have to look at each other and see the hope in our eyes, and the pain in our eyes, understand the problems of the people have, the dreams we all have, and we have to help each other.
he said that is what we have to do. this is a big deal. [applause] mr. clinton: you put her in charge, you make her president, you will be glad. with a be a great thing to have the first women president? yes. is she better qualified, as president obama said, then i was, than he was? yes. the most important thing is, the only chance we have is to be forever young. thank you, god bless you. [applause] ♪ >> c-span's washington journal

[chanting usa] mr. trump: thank you very much ladies and gentlemen. thank you. thank you. thank you very much. boy, it is a lot of people. so, this was the scene of my first major speech right after i announced i was running for president or it -- president. today, we are beating it we have more than 15,000, and we have a lot of people pouring in.
should we wait for them? no, we are not waiting. that.lent majority is in 10 days, we are going to win the state of arizona. and we are going to win back the white house. [cheers and applause] we are, oh we are. a trump administration will and replacerepeal the disaster known as obamacare. it has just been announced that the citizens of arizona are going to experience a 100 and 16% increase in their obamacare premiums.
-- a 116% increase in their obamacare premiums. [boos] mr. trump: don't feel bad. you won't be the highest in the country. is that amazing? and it does not work. elect me and we will stop the premium hikes for good. we will stop the madness of obamacare. it will be repealed and replaced, believe me. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: i would love to have those cameras turn over here and show those people. they don't understand. they don't understand. it would be so good for their television ratings. they don't understand it. they keep it right here on this very nice, but small group of people behind me. they don't have great seats. they don't have great seats, but tomorrow they will be famous, ok? [laughter]
mr. trump: i wish the cameras would turn these cameras. the people don't have any idea what's going on, do they? but they know. they are the most dishonest, corrupt people. they are the most dishonest people. they are the most dishonest people. the only time they turn is when they have a protester, and that we learned through wikileaks that hillary clinton was paying the protesters $1500 each to be violent at our rallies. [boos] mr. trump: we just learned that last week. wikileaks. every single one of arizona's 15 counties is losing insurers next year because of obamacare. in phoenix, there are eight obamacare insurers, ok? good luck. by the way, have a lot of fun negotiating. there is nobody to negotiate
with. next year, you will have one group to negotiate with. i would like to be that one group. that one group is going to do very well, but you are not going to do very well, but you will do very well if i am getting elected, because we are getting rid of obamacare. we will have an alternative that is cheaper, better. it was announced this week that obamacare premiums in phoenix will go up 145%. [boos] mr. trump: the worst part, it's no good. it's not like it's great. it's no good. one insurer in the state will have a $14,000 deductible. in other words, you've got to use $14,000 worth of care before they start giving you anything. sounds like a good idea? no.
folks, we are going to have so many great plans. we are going to have so much competition. we are going to get rid of the borders, get rid of the lines, the artificial lines that are put there to make the insurance companies rich. so they have no competition. you are going to have so much competition for your business, and you are going to have great health care, and it is going to be a tiny fraction of what you are paying now. just remember. obamacare is a catastrophe for arizona, and it is a catastrophe for the united states of america, and we are going to get rid of i even bill clinton admitted obamacare is the craziest thing in the world, where people wind up with premiums doubled and eir coverage cut in half. he's right, but it's actually much worse than that. crseilbelo t60where thpremiu
thdecricovno who a real party stalwart, said the affordable care act is no longer affordable. that's in minnesota, a state which we could actually win. we can win minnesota. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: and by the way, we are winning arizona big. you have seen the recent polls. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: and i want to thank governor brewer for being here. where is she? she is around here someplace. and what a job that young, beautiful woman -- what a job you did. and folks, folks, he's a good man. he was one of the first endorsers of donald trump. vote for sheriff joe. stand up, joe. [cheers and applause]
[chanting "joe"] mr. trump: they don't love tough people in this country anymore, then know how to do their job, and fair people. he's tough, he's fair, and i hope he gets reelected, and he should. go out and make sure he gets reelected, everybody. there are some bad undercurrents out there, folks. jonathan gruber, the architect of obamacare, remember from m.i.t.? [boos] mr. trump: my uncle john was a great professor at m.i.t. for a long time. unfortunately, i liked him a lot better than jonathan gruber. but jonathan gruber admitted it was all a fraud, and he said, outrageously, that it was passed
because the stupidity of the american voter is unbelievable. [boos] mr. trump: we are going to show him, on november 8 -- [cheers and applause] mr. trump: we are going to show him on november 8, the american voter has had it. they have had it. hillary clinton wants to double down on obamacare, make it even more expensive. in fact, much more expensive than it is right now. [chanting "lock her up"] [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] mr. trump: you know, when people ask me about the crowds, they say it sounds like an ohio state football game, actually.
[cheers and applause] mr. trump: sure sounds big. you can actually tell a crowd by the sound. you can't imitate that sound. when hillary clinton got up, i watched her today -- oh. [boos] mr. trump: and she had very few people. she walked onto the stage -- i always do this, and today i didn't. i'm always surprised by how many people. it goes all the way into the corners, look at that. this incredible room come all the way into the corners. but when she came on today, she looked at a small group of people and says wow, wow, wow. that's what i do. she's copied me. i don't do it anymore because she's copied me. i am always surprise, i go well. and she goes well, and there were very few people.
my contract with the american voter outlines a plan to repeals and replaces obamacare, and i am asking for your vote so we can save health care for every family in arizona. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: real change also means getting rid of the corruption in washington, d.c. [cheers and applause] [chanting "drain that swamp"] mr. trump: drain that swamp. , it wasave heard announced yesterday that the fbi is reopening their investigation
into the criminal conduct and illegal conduct of hillary clinton. this is the biggest political scandal since watergate, and it's everybody's deepest hope that justice at last will be beautifully delivered. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: hillary has nobody but herself to blame for her mounting legal difficulty. her criminal action was willful, deliberate, intentional, and purposeful. hillary set up an illegal server for the obvious purpose of shielding her criminal conduct from public disclosure and exposure. she sets up this illegal server knowing full well that her
actions put our national security at risk and put the safety and security of your children and your families at risk. [boos] mr. trump: but she did not care. as long as she and bill got the money, the safety of your family made absolutely no difference to her. [boos] [chanting "lock her up"] mr. trump: to cover up her crimes, she bleached something that even sophisticated people know nothing about, partially because it's so expensive. she bleached and deleted 33,000 e-mails after, after, after, after, after receiving a congressional subpoena, made 13 phones disappear, some with a
hammer, lied to congress under oath many times, lied to the fbi many times, and then, recently, two boxes of e-mail evidence went mysteriously missing. [boos] mr. trump: although they might have found a lot of those e-mails over the last couple of days, folks. [cheers] mr. trump: a lot of e-mails, a lot of trickery. the wikileaks revelations have exposed criminal corruption at the highest levels of our government. hillary put the office of secretary of state up for sale. look at what's happened. and if she ever got the chance, she would put the oval office up for sale also. [boos]
mr. trump: she would put it up for sale to the special interests and the foreign dictators, whoever offers the right price, and usually that is the highest price. yet, now it's reported that the department of justice is fighting with the fbi. that's because the department of justice is trying their hardest to protect the criminal activity of hillary clinton. [boos] mr. trump: what has our country come to? 97% of the department of justice employees, all of their presidential contributions, just
about, 97% went to hillary clinton. i don't think they like me. [boos] mr. trump: there are those -- and i happen to be one of them -- who think hillary offered loretta lynch, the attorney general, a reappointment as attorney general if hillary were to become president. [boos] mr. trump: we don't want that to happen. a lot of people feel that way, right? perhaps that was what bill clinton was arranging when he met with attorney general lynch on her airplane, on the tarmac, on a very warm day, right here in arizona. [boos]
mr. trump: the meeting lasted 39 minutes, and it was just a coincidence he was here to play golf. i hate to tell you it was about 109 degrees that day. we all love arizona, but i am here so much. when it gets to a certain temperature, we just say, let's stay inside today. it was 109, it was a very hot day. but he just happened to see her. did you see that? oh, there is the attorney general's plain writing down the runway. i'm out golf, oh, there's the attorney general. i have had a plane for a long time. never once has anybody entered my plane by saying, hey, can i come under plane, from the tarmac, while the plane is moving along. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: so they spent 39 minutes talking about golf and their grandchildren.
i give golf two minutes, i give the grandchildren three or four minutes. the rest of the time, perhaps, was discussing the fact that the attorney general was going to make a decision, right after that, about hillary clinton. so what's happened to the justice department? what's happened? this is what i mean when i say that our system is rigged. our system is riggedfos. ceful wh urot. watch your votes. a vote for hillary is vote to surrender our government to public corruption, cronyism that threatens the survival of our constitution itself. what makes us exceptional is that we are a nation of laws and
that we are all equal under those laws. hillary's corruption shreds the principle of which our nation was founded. so sad. government corruption spreads outward, like a cancer, infecting the whole operation of
our government. i have to tell you, i respect the fact that director comey was able to come back after what he did. i respect that very much. and when the other side is complaining and complaining and complaining, there was no reason for it, because all of the crimes that were committed, something should have happened then, not now. and just to break it down, when you delete 33,000 e-mails after
getting a subpoena, that's it, it's over. it's over. [boos] mr. trump: and i will tell you, without knowing anything, the only reason -- [chanting "lock her up"] mr. trump: the only reason that they did this action that you saw yesterday was very, very serious things must be happening and must have been found. very serious things. [boos] mr. trump: and you can also ask, when they complain on the other side, why wasn't this evidence given previously? why wasn't it given previously?
and when you talk about instincts, i don't know if anybody saw my comments on anthony weiner -- [cheers] mr. trump: it's called instinct, folks. i had no idea it was going to be that accurate. boy, that was right on the nose. when the outcome is fixed, when the system is rigged, people lose hope. they stop dreaming. they stop trying. when the powerful can get away with anything, because they have the money and the connections to rig the system, then people lose confidence in our loss and confidence in their futures. hillary clinton's corruption is corrosive to the soul of our nation, and it must be stopped. it must be stopped. [cheers and applause]
mr. trump: and one of the reasons i've been saying that the system is so corrupt and rigged is not only what happens at the voters booth, and you know things happen, folks. i watched obama saying, oh, this is a foundation of the system, how can he say it? and yet, eight years ago he's on a clip talking about chicago and how the voting is rigged in chicago. give me a break. take a look at it, eight years ago. it's all over the place. but one of the reasons i say
it's rigged is, hillary clinton -- nothing to do with what was found recently -- hillary clinton should never, ever, based on everything that took place, be allowed to run for the presidency of the united states. she should not be allowed. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: she should have been disqualified a long time ago. when you read the nasty wikileaks, the horrible things said about catholics and the horrible things said about evangelicals, and the horrible things said about bernie sanders. what they said about bernie sanders, i mean, say what you want, what they said about bernie sanders is rather incredible. and then they have their superdelegates, and they had all the people stacked against him. he never had a chance. and you know what? the worst thing he did was backing her, because you would have gone down as a great figure in political history in this country, but once he did that he
sold his soul to the devil. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: but we will take the bernie sanders voters, because my trade policies are much tougher and much stronger and much better than his, and we are going to have a lot of trade, but it's going to be a two-way highway, not a one-way road out, believe me. as fdr once said, government by organized money is just as dangerous as government by organized mob. so true. hillary believes money and power, not truth and justice, should rule the day. we have one ultimate check on hillary's corruption, and that is the power of voting november 8. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: so the only way we
are going to beat the corruption is to show up and vote by the tens of millions, including millions of people voting for the first time in their entire lives. vote with all your heart and soul, because we are going to make america great again, ok? just remember that. [cheers and applause] "usa"]ng mr. trump: restoring honesty to our government and the rule of law to our society will be a very high priority of my presidency. haven't we had enough drama with the clintons? [cheers] mr. trump: bill clinton was
impeached for lying and obstructing justice, signed the worst trade deal in history, nafta, which emptied our country of its manufacturing jobs, and he does not even have the right anymore because of what he did to practice law. hillary has brought scandal to destroyed virtually everything she has done. look at jobs in upstate new york, a disaster. or look at syria, iraq, libya. and now look at the mess she is in with these e-mails. that will last for years. you think that is going away? that will be there for years. this will be the year the american people say, "enough is enough." [cheers and applause] mr. trump: this will be the year the american people break with the better failures of the past
-- bitter failures of the past and embrace a new, optimistic future. we have such potential. my contract with the american voter begins with a plan to end government corruption. i want the entire corrupt washington establishment to hear and heed the words we are about to say. when we win on november 8, we are going to washington, d.c., and we are going to drain the swamp. [cheers and applause] [chanting "drain the swamp"]
mr. trump: when i first heard that term, i hated it, i said, oh, that's so hokey. that's so hokey. but i said, look, let's give it a shot. i tried it in the place went crazy. then i said, maybe we will try it again. the place went crazy, and now i like it. [cheers] mr. trump: great singers, frank sinatra. frank sinatra did not like "my way" when he first sang it, and then he noticed the audience liked it a lot, and it went out and became number one. and all of a sudden he started to love that song "my way," right? so drain the swamp. at the core of my contract is to
-- my plan to bring back our jobs that have been stolen from us. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: right now, 70 million american women and children live in poverty, or near the brink of poverty. america has lost 1/3 of its manufacturing jobs since bill and hillary's nafta, 1/3. [boos] mr. trump: america has lost -- listen to this, because it's not even a number. honestly, i thought it was a typo. i thought it was 700 factories, or 7000. america has lost 70,000 factories since china entered the world trade organization. [boos] mr. trump: and i am very close to china. i have done great deals in china. their tenants and buildings in new york. china is wonderful. i'm not angry at china. i'm angry at our people for allowing them to get away with this. [cheers and applause]
mr. trump: i have the biggest bank in the world, the chinese farm bigger than any of -- other bank or tenant of mine. i sell them condos because of china. china is wonderful, but they are getting away with murder. mexico is getting away with their leaders are smarter. they are more cunning, something is different. we will build a wall, don't worry. [cheers and applause] [chanting "build a wall"] mr. trump: we are living through the greatest job theft in the history of the world.
this is the single greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. there has never been nafta. one-way street out. i always say, they get the jobs, they get the factories and plants, right? they get the money. what do we get? we get the drugs, we get the unemployment. we get the drugs, the unemployment. hillary's goal is to send millions more jobs out of our country, because that's what her special interests want. i will have over $100 million invested in the campaign. my money, ok? if i don't pull this off, i am going to feel very foolish. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: but you know what? its money i don't take from special interests and lobbyists and donors. and we have had tremendous success with the small donors, $61 a head. no republican has ever come
close. we have raised millions of dollars in campaign contributions from small donors, people who put up $61. and no republican has ever done that. very few people have ever done it. but it has been beautiful to watch. they love our country. i love our country. that's why i'm doing it. again, remember, i had a good time with the other side. when you talk about inside or outside, i was on the other side for a long time. i did very well on the others side. but i also loved our country, and i saw what was happening,
and we were going in such a wrong direction. we were not going to have a country left anymore. between in iran deal, where we give them back $150 billion -- how about we give them $1.7 billion in cash? remember, we thought it was $400 million, right? you know what that is?
that is the stage, much bigger. triple it, going up to the ceiling. that's what cash is. $400 million. and we were wrong. it was not $400 million. it was $1.7 billion in cash. airplane loads. and
in obama said it had nothing to do with the hostages, but it did. the hostages would not be released until this cash came. $1.7 billion, and they would not release the hostages until they got the cash. and then they humiliated us. everybody forgets -- i never forget, never forget. then they humiliated us with the 10 sellers, right? they would have kept them forever, except the cash was to be paid two days from the time of their capture. so instead of saying, hey, folks, you were delivered the wrong order, hey, get out of
here. they captured them, brought them to their knees, humiliated those 10 people, but the rest of their lives they humiliated, and they humiliated the united states of america after they made one of the great deals ever, and then they ride around and do things around our boats, they circle us. they would not be doing that. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: and then they take their fighter jets and ride very close. it's amazing. we gave them everything, and now, instead of thanking us, they feel emboldened. they feel emboldened. so you watch. we are going to be very, very careful. we have to be very careful. signing nuclear deals is a good thing, not a bad thing, but kerry never won.
-- walked. they got every single point. the worst deals are the kind that are worse if we had no deal. with all of the things, with all the stupidity i see, how about with a capture, they are going to deport 800 people. these were tough people. they made a mistake. they were going to deport them -- you know what i am talking about. sorry, united states citizens, welcome aboard. [boos] mr. trump: strike the money. instead of $400 million it was 1.7. even worse. so the 800 people, instead of being reported, they pressed the wrong button. you know what the wrong button is? this. the wrong button is somebody got cash, that's what i think area -- that's what i think. of course, how would i know a thing like that? just like they said, "how can
donald trump complain about voter fraud? there's no voter fraud that goes on." really? watch. so the 800 people, instead of being deported, what happens? congratulations, they are now citizens of the united states. [boos] mr. trump: we made a mistake there, too. instead of there being 800 people, it turned out to be 1800. our country does not win anymore. we don't win with isis. we don't win with trade. we don't win with borders. we are going to start winning again, folks. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: if you elect me -- -- i'm doing this for you, believe me. hillary clinton is going to raise taxes up to 45%, massively expand regulation, shut down american energy, which is a
disaster, and push through terrible trade deals that offshore our jobs to the benefit of her donors and special interest. her policies, in my opinion, will cause major recession and maybe even depression. a trump administration would stop transpacific partnership, a horror story. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: really bad deal. that's a really bad deal. we will renegotiate nafta, and we are not going to stand up. i will tell you why. we are going to have a great relationship with china. we are going to stand up to china on its massive currency manipulation, because they are beating our companies because of currency manipulation. we are going to lower taxes on american business from 35% to 15%. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: we are going to cut taxes for middle-class families
by hundreds of billions of dollars. my infrastructure plan will provide help for projects like the proposed interstate 11. you know what that is? it would connect phoenix with las vegas and other areas. everybody wants it. it's time we had something new. you ever notice we don't build bridges anymore, we don't build tunnels anymore? you go to china, they have bridges all over the place, tunnels. we don't build anymore, and we don't make anything anymore, relatively speaking. everything comes in from lots of different countries. we will also unleash the full power of american energy, including shale, oil, natural gas, and clean coal. we will put our miners back to work, folks. we will become a rich nation once again. but to be a rich nation, we must
also be a safe nation. a trump administration will secure and defend the orders of -- the borders of the united states, and yes, we will build a wall. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: i'm very proud to say that we have the endorsement of america's ice. you know what ice is, these are tough, strong, good people. also, 16,500, all of them, the border patrol officers -- the first time they have ever made an endorsement for president of the united states. first time they have ever done it. when hillary clinton was secretary of state, she allowed thousands of the most dangerous criminal aliens in the world to go free inside america, because their home countries would not take them back. so we would catch these killers, these druglords, these gang members. we would bring them back to their country and very
intelligently, their country them,say, we don't want we are not taking them back. so they would call the secretary of state how much she would say, back, that is why we have a lot of problems. we have people causing problems. there will not be one instance where we take them. not one. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: these were people guilty of murder, assault, rape, and all matter of violent crime. countless americans are killed by illegal immigrants because their government will not do its job. these include amazing americans, and you saw that incredible friend of mine who just spoke incredibly. the pain that so many people are going through. remembrance project, incredible people. americans like sergeant brandon
mendoza of mesa, arizona, who was killed by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record a mile-long who should have been deported. everybody wanted him deported. people begged that he would be deported. but the government, under obama refused to act. i spent time with his unbelievable mother. they were devastated. your life can never be the same. 28-year-old park ranger chris engle was shot and killed by a drug cartel responsible for a number of murders all over mexico. chris died trying to protect our borders from drug and weapon trafficking into the oregon pipe cactus national monument. he died.
a 33-year-old phoenix police officer, a young cancer survivor, was murdered a previously deported illegal immigrant -- murdered by a previously deported illegal immigrant with a record so long you would not believe it. how do these people get into our country? nick was shot twice in the back of the head. 21-year-old grant, whose father is here someplace. where is his father? you are fantastic. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: you are fantastic. grant was working at a convenience store in mesa, arizona when he was shot point-blank by an illegal immigrant. his illegal immigrants killer, despite a tremendously horrible criminal record, was out on bond and roams free.
when i become president, you can count on this, when i become president, this crime wave, this needless, senseless crime wave will end, and it will end immediately. [cheers and applause] [chanting "build that wall"] mr. trump: we are going to cancel all federal funding for sanctuary cities. [cheers] mr. trump: we are going to impose tough prison sentences for illegal immigrants who returned after a previous deportation. in other words, we get them out, they come right back. look at kate steinle, san
francisco. he came back five times. we say, listen, do it again, five years. do it after that, 10 years. you know what will happen? they won't come back. not complicated. we will end illegal immigration, deport every last criminal alien, and save american lives, and we will do it quickly. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: we will also repeal the obama-clinton defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted militaries. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: we have tremendous military support, unbelievable military support, and having, as you know, general flynn here, and having so many generals at our side -- in fact, where is general flynn? he's around here somewhere. incredible guy. [cheers and applause]
mr. trump: general kellogg. we have such incredible people. we have the endorsement of 200 admiral's and generals and 22 medal of honor recipients. our air force is the smallest and oldest it has ever been, and my plan builds a modern, advanced fighter aircraft we need. fighters like those that will be stationed at luke air force base. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: you ever see our fighters are so old that they don't even make parts for them anymore? you've seen the documentaries. they are all over the place. they have to go to plane graveyards and old airplane museums to get parts. this is what our great people are flying in. our army is the smallest --
that's right, but we give beautiful new stuff to people we hardly even know. that's right. we are run by a bunch of geniuses. our army is the smallest it has ever been since world war ii, and we will significantly increase both the size of our army and the emphasis we place on intelligence. you see what is going on, and i want everything to be done properly, but you see in mosul, i have been reading about it for four months. we are going to be attacking mosul in four months, in three months, and we will take the leaders of isil -- oh, did i say isil? [cheers] mr. trump: isis. i don't like saying isil.
i don't like saying isil. we will take the leaders of isis, and we are going to capture them. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: but you can't capture them because they know you are going in, right? so how do you capture them? about two minutes after they hear you are going into mosul, they are gone. whatever happened to the element of surprise, folks? as you know, mosul is tough. those leaders are gone. you go in, you do the job, you have the press conference a week later, not four months before. i wonder what the great general douglas macarthur, i wonder what the great generals of our country of the past would think when they see what is going on, when they see isis using human shields, killing people. it's like medieval times.
you don't talk. you get it done. here is obama, we are going in the four months to mosul. i don't want to hear it, though. please. we are going in in three. two months we are preparing. , one month, we are drawing a redline. what a group. we have a president who is essentially incompetent, i am telling you. incompetent. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: and why is he always campaigning with hillary clinton? why isn't he working on jobs? why isn't he working for the vets or straightening out that, because the veterans administration is a shame and a disaster. why isn't he doing these other
things? he is always campaigning for hillary. here is my question -- under the circumstances, with what the fbi just announced, will he continue to campaign? i don't know. i don't know if they are going to be able to do that. but we want to support the men fort wakuka, home of the army's intelligence center. places like marine corps air places like marine corps air station huma. they will have new aircraft. they would have the museums anymore. we will also need a new policy that puts america first.
we don't put america first, folks. it's almost like we have leaders that say, and negotiating with countries, we want to make sure they come out well. us, don't worry about us. they are doing it for a reason, because people take care of them very well. hillary's policies unleash isis, and powered iran, and spread death and destruction across the middle east. hillary and are failed -- our failed washington establishment have spent $6 trillion on wars in the middle east, and now it is in worse shape than we started. the middle east is in far worse shape. our failed establishment has betrayed the american worker and family. they have dragged us into foreign wars that have made us less safe, and they have left our borders wide-open at home, and they have shipped our jobs away to other countries, which we are stopping immediately.
